Definitely challenging with elevation gains. We ended up veering off Lime Kiln to take Trail Among The Trees and then to Rock Quarry and back again. Both are pretty scenic, though Lime Kiln is more challenging. Would visit again. Lots of downed and dead trees in some spots, with just a few parts of the trail blocked by such (but still navigable). Part of a bridge is out on Trail Among the Trees so there is a detour around it, though we ended up going that way anyway and climbing up the side. We went on a week day and there was little to no other hikers there.

Great fun with the family. Steep hills for little ones.

Short trail but one of my favorites. I have walked this trail several times. I think it is like a childhood memory type of thing. Very easy trail. I remember hiking this with my grandma as a kid. Has a cool old quarry towards the end. To look at it requires leaving the trail fro a bit.
